Kris and Dale do a phenomenal job! I searched around to different breeders all across the country and when I spoke to Kris on the phone I knew Premier Gundogs was the place to go! You can tell she has a true passion for her Boykins. I live all the way in PA. So we made the drive out and she was first class all the way. The facility that they have is top notch. We got our boy Copper from them and Kris has already given me invaluable advice on tips to train her Boykins for waterfowl and upland hunting. When we went and chose our pup he crawled into my arms and hugged me. 5 mins later Kris came out with a dead chukkar and it was go time. The 8week old pup went and grabbed the bird and brought it right back to us. We knew he was the one. If anyone has any doubts or any questions on who to buy a dog from, just call Kris. She will give you the most real and honest answers and it won’t take long for you to purchase one of their pups.

I called on every trainer in eastern Nebraska. Kris & Dale listened to what I was looking for and created a plan based on those discussions. While there are a lot of great outfits in our state. I felt they engaged in what I was looking for out of my pup vs a canned "this is what we provide and a price tag." My advice is to call them, talk about your goals for your pup and you will see a high level of service from a caring duo. Our pup came back with the same calm demeanor, which was important to us having small children. However they hit every mark we were looking to accomplish for the field and obedience. Even called me 2 weeks prior to our projected pickup date saying our dog has hit every goal and ready to come home. Then followed up a week after pick up to check on us and the transition. Kris made sure that I knew I could call anytime with questions or follow up processes if he develops a bad habbit this season. This dog works! Hits the field with high energy quartering well and nose to the ground. Very obedient on command or with the whistle. I am impressed & Reccomend calling Kris & Dale. they are all about positive training methods and truly have a love for what they do!

We recently got our Boykin Spaniel from Premier Gundogs and we couldn't be happier! Kris was very helpful throughout the whole process to make sure a Boykin Spaniel is what we were looking for. This puppy is so smart and loving and we are so glad that we chose Premier Gundogs and a Boykin Spaniel. We look forward to many years of hunting and a family companion with our pup. You will not be disappointed if you chose a Boykin Spaniel from Premier Gundogs.

I sent my new lab down to Dale and Kris for upland and obedience training. Sonny was about 6 months old when he went down. All I can say is this is 1st class all the way around. Not only have they made a great hunting dog, we have a nice well behaved dog for the family to enjoy!!!!

Kris and Dale have been incredible people to work with. They are quite personable and yet very professional. Their facilities are outstanding. I have been to their training kennels on five separate occasions and the place is spotless. They do a great job caring for all the dogs. I purchased a Boykin pup from them in the Spring of 2017. Kris was extremely knowledgeable about the Boykins and kept me updated consistently until I came to pick out our pup. I brought him back for training in the August of 2017. He was only 5 months old but they did an wonderful job on his training. By the time I picked him up (only a month and a half later) he was already following whistle commands and able to perform marked and blind retrieves. They did a great job on his general obedience as well. This attention to detail really showed that they were spending quality time with the dog. I couldn't be more pleased. I would highly recommend contacting Premier Gundogs if you are looking for high quality upland or waterfowl training for your dog (regardless of breed). If you are looking for a Boykin pup they are raising some great ones with a lot of natural hunting drive. On top of that they are good people who really seem enjoy what they do.

I got my pup in the spring of 2016. Prior to deciding on a Boykin, Kris took the time to make sure a Boykin was the right dog for my hunting style. I got a late start on training due to Heath issues in the family, but Kris was able to get us in for fall training. I was really impressed with the updates on Chino's training and had the opportunity to hunt him in the late season of pheasant. He's not quite a year old and handles a snow goose well. Kris continues to answer any questions I have on training and I'm looking forward to not only the duck and upland season but further training at premier gundogs this year.

Our female boykin spaniel was everything Kris said she would be and more! Kris was super helpful and her passion for these dogs was so evident. She went out of her way to make sure we got the dog we wanted. Our satisfaction was very important to Kris. She answered all of my questions and provided many good training tips. She called and checked in to make sure the pup's transition to our house went smoothly.
This dog is amazing. She retrieved her first duck at 6 mos. Her instinctual bird drive is something to see. Highly recommend Premier Kennel!

We now have a 17 month old Boykin Male named Juno we purchased as a puppy from Kris and Dale Taylor. His parents are Mocha and Tote's who are on site. We have also had the puppy back twice for foundation and upland/waterfowl training. Several things:
1. Kris is extremely knowledgable about her Boykin's, their lines and the current lines out there to breed to. I found the information I got before placing a deposit invaluable.
2. We were looking for a good pet as well as an awesome hunting dog. That is what they breed for and delivered. The stock has all of its clearances for health and are triple registered.
3. The training experience has been second to none. They know how to get the best out of this breed. My dog was always extremely well cared for and accomplished far more than I thought possible both times he was there. Good, clean facilities and wonderful training grounds right there. My pup was trained on birds, birds and more birds.
4. I picked him up on Saturday and we hit the fields for his first live hunt ever on Sunday and limited on grouse and Hungarian partridge. He performed beautifully. Didnt lose a single bird and made some very good retrieves in tall grass.
5. Kris is always available for questions after the pup comes home. I have had a couple of things I have had questions on and she will usually get back to me the next day and let me know how to fix any issues I may be having with my own attempt at training.
6. I wont hesitate to drive the 700 miles to get all of my training and any future pups from Premier Gun Dogs.
